About this app

The purposefully re-designed Audeze HQ app allows you to control both Audeze Maxwell and Penrose headsets, and customize functionality of the headphones. Audeze HQ connects via Bluetooth, and your customizations travel with your headphones, so once you've set the parameters they stay in place until you change them again.
The Audeze HQ app features a 10 band equalizer that lets you apply EQ adjustments to any audio you play. The app allows you to save EQ curves as presets, toggle side-tone on and off, and when connected to XBox or another supported device, change the game/chat mix.
For Maxwell, Audeze HQ has additional controls such as voice prompt levels, and even more EQ presets (6 predefined, and 4 user defined).
Please note that this app does not support Audeze Cipher Cable or Audeze Mobius.

Please update software for the Audeze Penrose so the headset software will stop crashing. I have to hard reset at least once daily. Sometimes I will think I have my mic muted, but the headset software has crashed and the headset is displaying the blue light signifying a desync or disconnect. At this point the headset will only do what it was allowed to do before it's software locked up, so if I had my mic on, I cannot turn it off without a full hard reset. This happens way too often.

The app is decent enough interface to the intended headsets. I have both Penrose and Maxwell Xbox headsets and I like being able to control them via the app. I wish the app had widgets so that I could have info like battery status and be able to mute, change eqs and control the mix from the home screen and lock screen in a compact form. It'd also be nice to have a little more granularity in the eq presets. 8k to 16k, there's allot of frequency range effects within there.

Had crashing issues on my S7, but I complained about them here and they were patched in a couple of days. Really responsive support from Audeze! App works well enough now though a bit laggy on older phones like mine. As many have said, I do wish you could name the EQ presets. Also, I am unsure what the 3 blue boxes are in the hamburger menu are... it let's you assign images to them, but I don't get what they do. Possibly 3 sets of presets if you have 3 sets of headphones? Anyway, gets the job done. Like everyone else with a PS5, I wish the app could control chat mix. I'd much rather the mic volume handled that task instead of Mic volume which is needed far less frequently. Also, headphone repeatedly says "CONNECTED" when out of range, which is annoying. Once is enough... and shouldn't it say "DISCONNECTED" once? Decent app, just needs a little more refinement to get 5 stars.
